Adding value

I so believe that the secret to living is giving and adding value to other people's lives.

We live in a culture where people have been brainwashed into the concept of 'just enough', but this is so wrong. Always always always do more than is exptected of you and you'll be making an investment in making things that much better. 

Do things that challenge you but benefit the lives of those that need it. If you see someone needing love, give it to them, don't wait for them to ask.

Life is about being and doing, so make sure every day you're being a good person and doing great things for the greater good. What you give wil come back tenfold, therefore the more you give the more you get, which means the more you'll have to give. The cycle continues.......

Sleeping the weekend away

For some strange reason so many people insist on laying in bed for hours-on-end over the weekends, telling themselves 'I deserve a few extra hours in bed'.

I find this mindset and action (or lack of action) extremely weird, as it adds no benefit to your life whatsoever.

Human beings sleep way-too much anyway, as they've been brainwashed to believe we need at least 8 hours sleep per night. Sleep studies clearly prove this to be utter nonsense, in fact the more sleep a person gets, the less awake they feel when they eventually get-up.  

Having prolonged lay-ins actually has a very negative effect on your psychological state too, as you qucikly realise you've not enough hours left in the day to do all those chores, this puts many people in a mild state of panic.

While i'm not saying ditch the lay-ins completely (you don't need to go cold turkey, so don't worry), what I am saying is moderate it to 45-60 minutes maximum.

Life is for living not lying in bed!

Words mean so much

I was recently listening Darren Hardy's Compound Effect CD in my car, when he used a great line that really struck a cord in me as a better way to say something.

Most managers/interviewers use the phrase 'what are your strengths and what are your weaknesses?'. Now, the word 'weaknesses' conjures up negative thoughts within and sows a seed of uncertainty and lack of competance. Therefore a better phrase to use would be 'what are your strengths and what do you need to improve?'

Just by taking out a negative word and replacing it with something more 'thought provoking' works wonders when trying to get a great answer, as opposed a knee-jerk reaction based on protecting ones self esteem. 

Pick your words wisely and I guarantee you'll get greater results in all areas of your life.

Flexible payment terms

I'm sure many people have considered using a Life Coach, but have concerns/reservations regarding the cost. Action for Living is happy to discuss 'flexible payment terms' as we fully appreciate 'coaching costs' are something you've probably never factored into your life.

It's always been my focus to help others, and if by having AFL's fee's broken down into more manageable installments, I get the chance to coach you, then it's a 'double whammy' situation.

If you are interested in having some coaching, then please give me a call and we can discuss what/how/when/why.

The power of your thoughts

So many people take their thoughts for granted, but we must realise 'thoughts are things'.

Your thoughts determine your feelings, your feelings determine what action you take in life, and from your actions you produce results.

Think like a winner, think with no limits, think as though you were a kid at Christmas doing your list for Father Christmas. 

Think about what it is you want out of life and write it down with a timeline on, and everyday first-thing read your 'wants list' and soon your wishes will be realised.

Think BIG, live HUGE!!!

Feeding the mind


Every day you must make sure you feed the mind with information that improves your life. Listening to self improvement CD's or watching youtube clips from peak performance coaches is a great way to learn while your doing other things. I work-out for around an hour a a half everyday and I'm constantly listening to Tony Robbins, Darren Hardy, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy and Jim Rohn as I train. I also listen to self-improvement CD's whenever I'm driving in my car, and I make sure I listen to at least an hour of something inspirational at bedtime, eventually drifting off to sleep while the messages continue to feed my subconcious mind.

New Year, a New You

Use this new year to get more out of your life than ever before. Remember, if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got!

Set yourself some really big inspiring goals, goals that excite you, goals that get your heart beating faster when you think about them. 

Don't settle for less than you can be, because you can always be so much more than you've been before. Commit to achieving your wildest dreams and burn the boats/bridges so you can't go back. 

Massive action will equal massive positive change!

Happy New Year! Live today like you've never lived before!

The Job Market

Don't go believing that the job market is as bad as the media telll us. Yeah, things aren't super wondeful out there, but it isn't all doom and gloom, believe me.

Job seekers have to work harder to get roles now, and be more resilient and focused than ever before. With the right mental approach and strategy in place, you will win.
